Overseas Rescue Dog

Have you recently welcomed a rescue dog into you life from overseas and are now starting to see some behaviours you have concerns about….

  • Hiding away in some part of your house
  • Barking at every noise they hear
  • Not sleeping through the night or resting in the day
  • Startled by movement
  • Nervous of strangers
  • Restless
  • Growling when approached

or perhaps you want to get support with your new rescue before behaviour problems occur.

It can be highly stressful for you too and what you envisage when getting a dog becomes a completely different picture, this can leave you overwhelmed and concerned whether you have made the right decision or worried you are going to do more damage than good.

Jo Hinds can provide support to make the transition for you and your new dog less stressful helping them adjust to their new home and the environments where you plan to take your dog.

Sadly a lot of people with the best intentions can overwhelm dogs that have come from the street, kennels or another home, to make up for what they have missed in their previous homes or lives. This can have detrimental consequences on the dogs behaviour. Its essential to help them adjust to enable them to relax and in turn this will enable you too.

Jo Hinds works with all rescue dogs specialising in working with street dogs rescued from abroad, some of the dogs she has already work with have come from countries such as Romania, Bulgaria, Spain, Macadonia, Hungry, Cyprus.

What are the common issues covered?

  • Settling them in
  • Sleeping
  • Mental and environmental stimulation
  • Exposing them to their new environment
  • Socialising with people and other dogs
  • Helping them trust and bond with you
  • Responding to name
  • Preventing aggression
  • Other concerns or problems

How are the sessions carried out?

Jo Hinds works with you and your new dog, in your own home and outside in your local area, where you will be regularly socialising and exercising your dog (COVID restriction dependant) or via virtual video sessions.

Can this be carried out by Telephone or Video?

Yes absolutely it can be, the benefits from this kind of session is that some rescues act differently when visitors are there, therefore remotely observing the dog behaviour allows me to seem them in a relaxed state and not putting more pressure on them having a stranger in the house. I also serve in person Covid restrictions and location dependant.

How does payment work?

I take payment in full to secure all appointment slots in the diary and invoice will be sent with payment details.
